Quaker Instant Oatmeal, Cinnamon & Spice and some Hot Raspberry Tea

Leftover dinner from last night, chili mac and a side salad


Baked Stuffed Pasta Shells and a side salad

I pre-made this the night before.  I have an eye doctor appointment at 4:30pm and didn't want to not make dinner that night, and this is easy for Andy to throw into the oven while I am getting tortured by the eye doctor.  :) 
I found the recipe on pinterest and it turned out great!

Baked Stuffed Pasta Shells

Thanks to for a great recipe in our household!


In an 8 quart pot, bring water to a boil and cook shells for 8 minutes or until al dente

Drain and cool immediately with cold water.
Drain and place open side down on paper towels.
In a medium bowl, combine the rest of ingredients except the spaghetti sauce.
Reserve the 1/4 cup of Mozzarella.
Place a thin layer of spaghetti sauce into the bottom of a 12 x 9 x 2 inch baking dish.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Spoon the cheese mixture into each pasta shell and place open side up, in a single layer, in prepared pan.
Pour the rest of sauce over the stuffed shells.
Loosely cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes.
During last 5 minutes of baking, remove foil and sprinkle remaining Mozzarella cheese on top.
Bake 5 more minutes.
Garnish with fresh chopped basil.

After Dinner Snack

Frozen Yogurt from Orange Leaf (a chocolate fix!!)
Cookie Cake and Brownie Batter Frozen Yogurt
Chocolate Caramel Turtles, Heath Bars, Reeses Cups, and Chocolate Chips
I only ate half and brought the other half home.  :)

After Snack Entertainment

There is this house by our's that does a light show with music and we stopped by for a couple of songs.  The photo doesnt do it justice, it is too cool!!  They take donations and the money is donated to a local food pantry, they are even cooler in my book now.  :)
